Grand NJ Road Trip

Our recent NJ road trip to celebrate my mom’s 90th birthday was a “grand” family affair — especially since our grandchildren, their parents, and Grenville’s aunt and uncle came for the party from New England. Not only did we have time to spend with grandkids, Bobby and Ellie, but some “photo ops” too — y’all know by now that we really like to share too !

Grandson Bobby just started kindergarten this year and likes it.

We really had a grand NJ road trip to celebrate not only a very special event but family time together.
